Better known as a surf paradise with rolling barrels located in the Indian Ocean, Nias, in fact, hides an ancient megalithic culture that is still very much alive until today. Here are not only complete megalithic villages but its living culture still thrives until today. These will be the highlight of the Ya'ahowu Festival.

For 5 full consecutive days, intriguing art performances and cultural traditions from across the Nias Islands will highlight the festival. All district governments together with the people of Nias will showcase their finest performances. Among these is the legendary barefeet stone jumping tradition called Fahombo, as well as other unique folk games such as Rago Ue, Fafusi, Fabelugama, and Fabiri.
